“The future is female.” It’s a favorite slogan of the identity left that has now gone mainstream. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted it on Wednesday, adding that the future is also “intersectional” and “powered by our belief in one another.” But if the future is female, what happens to our boys? And what message are we...

About 250 people huddled against the cold wind in Long Island City Wednesday, near the East River site where Amazon plans to move in. U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand later used a Twitter posting to join the chorus of critics. The gathering in Queens included dozens of elected officials, including City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, who represents the district that includes Long Island City and who said he’d been shut out of any negotiations and only learned the deal had been consummated by reading about it in the newspaper.

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) discussed President Donald Trump and the House of Representatives’ role once the Democrats hold the majority. MSNBC’s Willie Geist asked Gillibrand if she still believed Trump should resign given a group of women accused him of sexual assault. The potential 2020 presidential candidate said the president should resign, but said if not, the House “will hold him accountable” in office. “He’s got over a dozen credible allegations of sexual assault and harassment. But then you can add to that everything else,” Gillibrand told Geist. “This president has, again, torn at the fabric of who we are as a country and I think he is being held accountable right now by the electorate. The fact that all these voters have been marching and protesting since he was elected and then took it to the ballot box in 2018. That’s why 2018 was an important election for all o...

Seventy percent of all Americans support the creation of a government-sponsored health care system. Last October, a team of progressive researchers did what the Democratic Party itself was unwilling and unable to do: they published “Autopsy: The Democratic Party in Crisis,” a critical dissection of what lead to the disastrous 2016 election defeat, which everyone, including Donald Trump, had assumed was going to be a solid Democratic win.“Doing an autopsy is a way of epitomizing or bringing forth the idea that we can't wait for leadership that's recalcitrant to do the right thing,” co-author Norman Solomon told Salon at the time. Now the team is back with a followup report, “Democratic Autopsy: One Year Later,” a narrative report card on how well the aarty has done in making the sorts of change the original autopsy proposed. It comes just a weeks ahead of the midterm elections, which most pundits will try to evaluate as a report card on how Democrats are doing in resp...

Denver Riggleman would rather lecture women on how to avoid being raped than tell men not to rape. Denver Riggleman, the Republican congressional candidate for Virginia's 5th Congressional District, believes that rape is a complicated issue. But most of his solutions seem to put the burden on young women to avoid being raped.On Monday, Riggleman, a distillery owner and bigfoot porn enthusiast, sparred over the issue of preventing sexual assault with his Democratic opponent, investigative journalist and filmmaker Leslie Cockburn, at a debate at Piedmont Virginia Community College, and his thoughts were revealing."I think a lot of it comes to educating females, right, specifically in the fraternities and sororities that they’re a part of," said Riggleman. He also added that he believes in "making sure that there's support groups to help people report."As Emily Crockett of Shareblue Media notes, this answer is problematic for several reasons:Lecturing women on how to avoid getting...

Who will the Democrats nominate as their presidential candidate in 2020? Any woman who throws her hat into the ring will certainly have an advantage, as opinion poll analysis site FiveThirtyEight pointed out in August, "all else being equal, being a woman has been worth an additional 10 percentage points over being a man in the open Democratic primaries we looked at."Non-politicians who throw their hats into the ring may also have an edge, since Donald Trump's election in 2016 marked the first time that an American was elevated to the presidency without any political or military experience.In terms of certainties about who the Democrats will field against Trump (or Pence) in 2020, this is pretty much the sum of what we know for sure. Sure, we also know that Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Vice President Joe Biden are the frontrunners in the latest polls, but that doesn't mean very much considering that they're also the two candidates with the most name recognition.

Thursday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said she was “offended” by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony. Gillibrand said, “I thought Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony was incredible. I thought she was so heartfelt, she spoke her truth so passionately, with such candor, with such emotion. I was really inspired by what she did today. I thought the second half, though, was so discouraging. I thought the way Judge Kavanaugh started with partisan attacks, it really made me question his fitness for this office for the fact that he does not have the temperament or the character or honesty or integrity to be a Supreme Court justice. I was really disturbed by the second half of the hearing and disturbed by my Republican colleagues and how they acted and what they said.” She added, “He was so arrogant in how he spoke to senators, and dismissive. I was really offended by how he behaved at the hearing.” Follow Pam K...

And I’ve already read Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony and I believe her.” After Gillibrand stated the FBI should do a complete background check on Kavanaugh in light of the accusations against him, anchor Chris Cuomo asked, “[A]re you open to changing your mind?” Gillibrand answered, “Based on everything I have heard to date, no.

Unlike his, where he wouldn’t actually answer the question or say why he wouldn’t be interviewed by the FBI. That’s not the response of someone who wants to plead his innocence. I believe both of these women because there are corroborating witnesses who have testimony that is relevant to these accusations. Dr. Blasey Ford told her therapist five years ago, and her husband. She told a friend a year ago. She told a reporter before Kavanaugh was named. She’s already submitted to a lie detector test, and she’s asking the FBI to do the investigation. That, to me, is credible. Those are the hallmarks of truth. And then you have all this other info...
